If one where off cycle and their t-levels where in the normal range would adex serve to increase test levels a little higher than normal and there by protect lean mass during an intense diet cycle? Any possible sides?
In the same light, could it be used to boost growth and reduce fat accumulation during a growth cycle? [/quote]
It might be helpful the effect will be highly individualistic. So you can only try it and see. As the T levels will not be high when off gear, the dose need not be as high as used with gear, as the competition of T and AI at the molecular level acting on aromatase will not be the same.
1mg/wk might have a good effect, could try 2mg/wk. There is a limit to what anastrozole can do. A study showed that with normal young men, 1mg/day was as effective as 2mg/day.
If you get your E2 lower, SHBG may decline and that would improve the free T level.
